NOW WAKE UP!
So anyway, here we are, once again at the start of a new week, a new day, a new rain, a new sinus headache. Which is delightful to me. But who am I to complain when my daughter has it soooo much worse? I mean, really. How is a girl supposed to go on with her day, as if NOTHING has happened, when she has a bruise on her hip? And not just ONE bruise, but TWO IDENTICAL BRUISES! I KNOW!
And THEN, not only two hip bruises, but she peeled a piece of dead skin off her ear and NOW IT REALLY, REALLY STINGS! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW BAD! PLUS...get THIS...there is this spot on her hairline that FEELS like it's bruised! NO, REALLY! It TOTALLY is KILLING HER! And so I ask you all, is it any WONDER that the child needed to MAKE AN EMERGENCY CALL TO ME FROM SCHOOL this morning, to TELL ME OF ALL THESE AILMENTS, and then request she either come home immediately from school, or at the very least, I could bring her some Tylenol~RIGHT NOW~in order that she might continue to bare these burdens...silently, of course...and with a pioneer spirit...for the rest of her day?
From the fruit of my loins comes this mountain of courage. So very proud. (heart pound, head tilt, biting lower lip to keep my emotions from overwhelming this blog)
So I'm off, peeps. Time to unwrap the TREASURES I found whilst dancing through "Just a Bed of Roses." If you've never been there, GET OFF YOUR LAZY, RAINY DAY MONDAY DUFF, put on your pirate eye patch and metal hand hook and get to seeking! If there's anything left, that is. Cuz remember my hoarding instincts?
